Lancashire councillors have decided that in future any halal meat served in schools must be butchered from pre-stunned animals, with the exception of poultry.
Councillors agreed the new policy on the provision of meat in its premises after an lengthy debate today.
The ruling on beef and lamb will take effect when the council’s meat supply contract is renewed in December. Talks will now be held with the Lancashire Council of Mosques.
Ban Halal. End of Story.
